If you haven’t heard of Show of Hands by now, where have you been?!
Celebrating a remarkable 22 year partnership, Knightley and Beer have sold out the Royal Albert Hall four times and are triple winners at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (Best Duo, Best Original Song, Best Live Act). Joined by Miranda Sykes on double bass they have become one of the acoustic roots scene’s major players, widely recognised for their resonating original songs, stunning musicianship and remarkable audience rapport.
Features on BBC TV’s Country file, BBC Breakfast and Andrew Marr shows and regular airplay by the likes of Bob Harris, Mike Harding, Mark Radcliffe, Johnnie Walker and Simon Mayo has taken their music to a wide cross-section of audience.
Now they bring their genre-defying brand of music and instrumental virtuosity to London’s Cadogan Hall on this very special tour, the first chance to see the show in the capital in 2014. Steve, Phil and Miranda will be their own support act with a hard-hitting opening set before showcasing their myriad individual talents in solo, duo and trio combinations after the interval.
